I never knew this website existed until I saw it on a realtor website then I read some of the reviews for my home district Jackson Center. I have no idea why some of the posts are so negative but that is very different from what we have experienced. The teachers have high expectations but are still loving to all students. I have witnessed it myself many times over. We have loved their commitment to early childhood education and the innovative learning system in the elementary. We also have friends with students in the high school and they love the personal attention and dual enrollment classes. It is not a big school so some opportunites are not as readily available as they would be in a larger districts but I will take that trade any time. I'm not totally sure about the most recent test scores but someone was even telling me that the kids had the highest increase in the state over the last 3 or 4 years. This is a great school with great people.
This school is not about the children at all. So many parents have pulled their children out of this school because of the way they were treated. They let bullying go on even after it has been reported more then once. There is one elementary teacher that uses an elevated tone to try and intimidate the kids and keep them in line. I have a son that graduated from this school and did not like the school or the teachers with the exception of a couple. I filed a complaint against a teacher for being too rough with my grade schooler for talking. The principal basically sided with the teacher and did not care. The only way you get anywhere in this school is by your name and if your daddy is the superintendent or principal which unfortunately is what the other kids hear from said children. I have decided to pull my child from this school especially since he is receiving retaliation from my complaint.
This school is not good for any children with learning difficulties. They just push too hard. The parents and students seem to all ways be wrong and the staff all ways right. They need to get someone in there that can be a boss to the staff not friends. At this school you have a hard time if you don't have the right last name!!
I disagree with some of the methods used to teach our children in this district. I think that the test scores from this district should be much much higher because the teacher to student ratio is so low. Hopefully next year will be better for my child.
Great school with innovative leadership. If your child has difficulties this is a great place for your child.
If your child has any type of learning problem find another school. This little school tries to feed parents a lot of bull. I sent 3 kids through this system (2 valedictorians) kids who need help get left behind if parents aren't able to help and some aren't. Teachers review what the parents teach! They really don't want parent involvement they treat parents like students who they 'tell' how it is to be.
